Christian religion has its cradle in Palestine and Jesus Christ is the founder. It is commonly believed that the first Pentecost witnessed a great increase in the church’s numerical strength and received impetus to witness universally to its Lord. No sooner than the church left Palestine than it spread rapidly to Greece, Rome, Europe and Africa under the “direction of the Holy Spirit, finger of God or divine providence.In Nigeria Christianity was introduced by freed slaves in the early 19th century. After the abolition of the Trans Atlantic Trade some freed slaves who were originally Nigerians (the Egbas) left Freetown and arrived Badagry on April, 1839. The leader of the group, Thomas petitioned the government to allow them own their colony under the British jurisdiction, where they could engage in trade and also plant Christianity. Following this request James Ferguson invited Church Missionary Society (CMS) in London to begin Missionary activities in Badagry. Consequently, Thomas Birch Freeman of the Methodist Church and his colleagues Revd. Henry Townsend of the Anglican Church arrived Badagry, and on September 24, 1842 the first ever Christian worship was held in Freeman’s traveling tent. The Revd. Samuel Adjai Crowther who was ordained in 1842 later joined the mission team in 1846.
